My friend is scared of birth. She has birthed 2 babies, but she hyperventilates at baby showers when people share their birth stories. She just can’t bear to think about it at all.
If she was ever to get pregnant again, I would highly suggest she use Hypnobabies. Maybe not to prepare for an un-medicated birth, but rather to enjoy her pregnancy more and feel more excited about her birth, instead of fearful. She could still get an epidural if she wanted, of course. But her overall experience would be enjoyable instead of scary.
She is my same friend that does 100 mile bike rides.
That sounds so scary to me and not fun at all. But I wonder, if I started training on a daily basis, after a few months a 100 mile bike ride might actually be enjoyable.
It is just scary to think about from where I sit, not biking at all.
Preparation and perception can make scary things not so scary after all!
